The current Employment Verification Form (Form I-9) was due to expire on August 31, 2019. Until further notice, the Department of Homeland Security is directing employers to continue using the existing form available on U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website. Updated information about the new version should be available soon.
Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and work eligibility of employees. The form must be completed upon hire and may be filled out any time after the employee has accepted an offer of employment but must be completed by the end of the first day of work for pay.
Verification may be done manually using the Employment Eligibility Verification Form (Form I-9) or electronically by enrolling in E-Verify. E-Verify recently launched a new video resource page, serving as a one-stop location for important topics that may be of help to this process.
Information on Form I-9 and its use can be found in the HR Library.
